    Great! Now I hope he'll fund the NPS at an appropriate level, too.

    Best,

    I'm not enough into the specifics to comment - I don't like the 1.5b cut but obviously am glad of Antietam getting some attention.

    Jesus, that budget is an absolute train wreck. The only thing that's reasonable is the veterans affairs increase.

    Not at all, in fact on the contrary Trump is cutting budgets in almost all areas as a whole. He is focusing on rebuilding an renovating the country and rebuilding the much depleted armed forces. He will also be cutting taxes for everyone as a whole and giving people initiative to work harder and produce more. However, with his "paychecks" for being president he can "donate" money to wherever he sees fit. Proud to see him donate it to Antietam, to help keep the history alive in this country. How ironic is it for all of us playing this game that he offers his money to insuring the battlefield and historical society remains above water. Salute to Trump! As an American I honestly couldn't be prouder of the job he has done so far.

    Well this is true, the funding was only cut from Federal spending. The "National Parks" will, as it should've been this entire time, have to rely on the state it resides in to fund them.
    And before anyone says anything stupid like "well where's the money going" or "its a 'national' park" there are taxes planned on being cut, reducing the amount of money each individual will have to cough up to the Feds which you should be thankful for. As for the national park, refer to my statement about how the states should be the ones in charge of them.
